DETROIT – The Detroit Red Wings today recalled defenseman Filip Hronek from the American Hockey League’s Grand Rapids Griffins.

Hronek has totaled 23 games with the Red Wings this season after making his NHL debut on Oct. 4 vs. Columbus and has notched 10 points (3-7-10) in 18:25 average time on ice. The 21-year-old blueliner picked up his first two NHL points in back-to-back games this October, logging his first assist on Oct. 11 vs. Toronto before his first NHL goal on Oct. 13 at Boston. In 28 games with the Griffins, Hronek has posted the fifth-best points-per-game average of any AHL defensemen (minimum 20 games played), with 23 points (7-16-23) in 28 games, including a two-goal performance on Feb. 6 vs. Manitoba in which he scored twice in the final 1:21 of the third period to lead the team to a 2-1 win. Hronek leads all Grand Rapids defensemen in points and is tied for sixth in overall team scoring. The 2018 AHL All-Rookie Team blueliner owns 64 points (19-45-64), a plus-29 rating and 93 penalty minutes in 105 AHL games since 2016-17.

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977. No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y. Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation. There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature. Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
